What is a Module?

Overview

A module in Joomla! is a "mini program" that can be displayed in various positions on the website.  Modules can make your site more dynamic and easier to work with if used properly.  You can usually identify an article by its location on the website outside the main content area where articles appear.

Types of modules

There are many different types of modules, each with different functionality.  Some modules are included with Joomla!; these are called "core modules."  Other modules come from developers outside the Joomla! Project; these are called "third-party modules."
